Challenge: Garbage II (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Canon EOS-350D Rebel XT
Lens: Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6
Location: G-D of Luxembourg, Bascharage, my bedroom
Date: Nov 8, 2005
Aperture: F/13
ISO: 100
Shutter: 30sec.
Galleries: Studio, Advertisement
Date Uploaded: Nov 8, 2005

Painted with light (once again)

RAW conversion with Canon Digital Photo Professional
Exposure Correction: -0,17
Colour temperature: 3000K
Tone curve adjustment (darken background, decrease contrast in highlights)
Colour adjustment: Saturation 128
Converted to TIFF

Post Processing in PSP9:
USM 1,50/75/20 (High clipping to keep the carpet texture smooth)

Alternative Titles:
Paltry Poems
The Peevish Poet
Putrid Poetry

As you can see, I went for catchy alliterations. I think the title I chose emphasizes the idea of the poems/writings being trash.

I like this image. The lighting gives the contast more impact. It holds the eye longer - demands attention.

Nicely lit, makes an ordinary wastebasket interesting. Gave this a 7.

I like the set up and the crispness of the colours in this photo, very nicely done in my opinion.

nice. i think it'd look more authentic if the papers looked more used, and written on. it looks like it was setup. which most pictures are, but i think that some minor adjustments would make this picture do alot better. good job

Hey... that's an Ikea garbage can, isn't it? I have an identical one in my computer room. I remember buying it right after the last Garbage challenge! I like the shot a lot, by the way... :) - 9

Your set up would have appeared more realistic if there had been some printing or writing on the pieces of paper. The darkness in the bottom corners of the picture seems visually annoying for some reason. It is a good idea for the challenge.
